Our family lives in Marion. When we are looking for a "nice" dinner but don't want to travel to Morganton or Asheville, Low Country is our go-to restaurant. The owner (who occasionally doubles as the chef) is always friendly to everyone, always. Low Country is a great place to have a drink if you are looking for something different that... More

We were staying near Marion, and wanted to eat at a local place. This was a really nice one. When one of us was not sure which beer to get, the waitress brought tasting samples of a couple of them. That is good service. The food was good, and the place was full of locals, so we found exactly what... More

First I must start by saying the last reviewer has Low Country confused with Countryside BBQ! Low Country is high end dining, not food that comes out in 5 minutes, and they don't have a front porch with rocking chairs (as soon as I read that I realized they were describing Countryside BBQ). Low Country is on Main Street, and... More

First and foremost the food - Best rack of lamb I think I have ever had. Bone in ribeye where even at a business dinner everyone picks up the bone and eats it clean. Fresh tomato salad that looks like it is out of a food magazine and tomato pie that is to die for. The appetizers - fries green... More

Everything on the menu is terrific. The chef is constantly experimenting. The specials are amazing. Call ahead so you can go when the tomato pie is on the menu. Steaks were great. Rack of lamb was outstanding. The Untimate Dessert, pecan pie with banana pudding is to die for.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. The food was OK, but not as special as we expected. The basic problem is that the food is rather bland.

Wonderful food, great service, friendly people -- what more do you need to know. Special Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly (which many restaurants don't). Good, somewhat over sized dessert.

So we tried this place because of a recommendation. Menu looked good. Cute building but a little smelly-old, mildew smell. Anyway I ordered the shrimp and grits. Grits were horrible. Very bland. Just not good grits. Shrimp weren't bad, but nothing special. Just medium sized frozen shrimp sautéed in some butter. Bland but edible. Husband ordered a burger and it... More

Heard about this quaint spot from a friend. They didn't steer us wrong. Very hospitable atmosphere, both the restaurant and the hosts. My husband had the filet mignon and I had the salmon, both outstanding. Would definitely recommend deviating from the Asheville tourist scene to this lovely spot. Great food, full bar, great atmosphere, good people....what else is there? All... More
